1999 Jeep Cherokee mileage: under 87,000. Our mechanic, dealer and auto parts store are all stumped. We've ordered five "correct" rotors none of which match the original. All the computers and books tell them it’s "this one" but when it’s on the car the wheel won't turn and its visually different. Our original is more squared off and does not stick up as much. We are open to any and all ideas.

It is not uncommon for car manufacturers to make mid-year engineering changes on their car parts. Check to see if the part numbers are different for 1998 or a 2000 model. If so, try one of those. If a car manufacturer runs out of 1999 brake rotors during production and they have a supply of 1998 parts left over or they have the new 2000 parts available they will use what they have available. Sometimes the 1999 model can have either the 1998 or the 2000 part

I plugged in 4WD- (if its called a Jeep, my reasoning is, it should be 4WD!)

They show some good pics, even different views, Advance Auto offers the same type View System

Plug in a year UP and Down, see if you see it
